I always have the perspective that “Now” is the best gift ever, and Spencer Johnson made it more obvious. For instance, Spencer wrote something about “being in the present, pay attention to what is important now, enjoy the moment” which was reflected on the young boy in his story. He realized that his work was getting easier bit by bit by just focusing on the task at the moment.
When we speak of spirituality, people often relate it to religion. However, spirituality is more than that; it is a whole manner of living often to reduce one’s dependence on materialism, so as to gain ultimate happiness. Buddhism is not about mere beliefs or blind faith, but is often touted as a way of life. It emphasizes the gradual, incremental practice of generosity, morality, and mental cultivation, whereby the practitioner overcomes ignorance by wisdom.
